For months, the Atlanta-based airline has been serving sandwiches, salads and bowls in first class on long flights. But hot meals have been limited to international business class and first class on some cross-country flights.
Starting in March, Delta said it will serve hot meals — like osso bucco, chicken cacciatore and French bread pizza — in first-class on some flights 900 miles or longer.
Barbecue beef short ribs from Atlanta’s Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q will be served for lunch or dinner on some long flights from Atlanta, Delta said. The airline said the short ribs will be prepared by Fox Bros. with its usual smoking method.
Delta is also adding more snacks on board, with a choice of Biscoff, almonds, pretzels or Kate’s Real Food dark chocolate cherry and almond bars.
